If This Then That


Millennial #snowflakes clash with #baby-boomers:  Nineteen tales of human connection and disconnection that collide and subvert the half-crazed romantic contemporary, the not so distant rosy past, our dodgy looking promised cyberpunk utopia and our post-apocalyptic dystopian future. Provocative, wistful, melancholic, nightmarish and darkly funny satire, these episodes…must surely play out logically. Or not.

How far will these characters go for love, understanding or survival? To Sainsbury's, the Caribbean or Tibet, up a ladder, under Biotech's robotic knives, or…to the brink of sanity? A pack of reluctant hopeful lone wolves: one builds a cabin, one a bike, another joins a teen gang. The refugee, the bereaved, the gaslighted child and the helpful neighbour all wander. The quixotic therapy addict just fibs like hell. And the porn voyeurs? The always-on algorithm search engine media junkies? Well, they do what they do, right #now.      

Welcome to the curious world of If this Then That.

Biographie de S A Finlay

published her first novel, Carnaval, with WriteSideLeft last year. It took her a few years because she was recovering from a Creative Writing Masters. She’s written a lot of (some good, some average) poetry, been runner-up and longlisted in major poetry & short fiction competitions and is currently working on a cyberpunk novel that features the stories Paradise by Numbers and Sawtooth Waves.

My first novel, Watkins & Son is published by Wet Zebra. My play, Cleopatra, has been performed at the Kings Head and Hope theatres in Islington. Madame Manet and Blood-Crossed have been performed at the Tabard in Chiswick. I’m currently working on a collection of short stories based loosely around The Fall. When off the field of combat, I work with entrepreneurs in London helping them grow their businesses.

a 22-year old trans musician. I have been writing for 15 years and I started to help me cope with my parents’ divorce, but it has grown to be a strategy for all emotional situations. I am originally from Eastbourne, East Sussex but I am currently residing in Weymouth, Dorset waiting to move to Hampshire. I have just recently started to get noticed because of a song based on my transition from female to male. In February 2018 I was awarded the b-side TCFT Young Artist’s Bursary.

 a committed techie: the future is always coming! He read astrophysics before taking up a career as a full stack developer and is now heading for the nebulously exciting world of blockchain. When not writing code he loves drumming, reading & writing & watching sci-fi, rowing and learning…anything really.

at school, long ago, an irritating jokester, a constructor of wayward narratives. Gainfully occupied, for nearly forty years, illuminating shady corners as a maker of images…Now back to word play…which feels, somehow, fresh and new.

I’ve created many photo-stories, written/directed over forty documentaries, two feature films and worked as a director of photography/director on nine hundred TV commercials. I‘ve written three plays, forty film-scripts, and many poems and essays about photography, politics and culture. In the last few years I’ve been teaching about Democracy as well as about photo-storytelling.

a London-based writer and content producer. When not writing copy as a wage-slave for clients, he writes short stories and poems. Interested in memory, light and empathy, his writing features in several UK publications.

writes through a necessity of catharsis, in attempts to understand and process the intensity of her relatively short life to date. She's about to start living in a van, with the intention of creating a nomadic, literary, soul midwifery sort of a life.

I’m 17, I work part time in a Kiosk at West Bay and am currently doing an English Language and an English Literature A-Level (alongside a Creative Writing EPQ) at the Sir John Colfox Academy and Beaminster joint Sixth Form in Dorset. I’ve been reading ever since my early years at primary school, but only began to start properly writing in year 8 when my English teacher told me I had a knack for it. Now I get told I write far too much by my friends! The Wolves stories are excerpted from my first novel of the same name.

Rather than allow mental health issues to be a mire, I try to find forms to accommodate depression, anxiety and OCD. I'm interested in the disconnect fuelled by technology, the public sector and the ways we self-medicate. Oh, and I have a burning desire to impress my dad.
